It's like the 1980s again, only with Thom Yorke instead of the Beat and 'return a vote of no confidence in Tony' in place of Stand Down Margaret. But let's not quibble with the pop and politics reuniting as Thom Yorke calls for Blair to do something:

"I've had enough of this", he said. "Our government sitting on the fence with the US while World War 3 appears to be breaking out in Lebanon and Northern Israel."

Yorke continued: "We must throw Tony Blair out of office NOW. He does not represent the views of British people. He does not represent the views of his foreign office and officials. He does not even represent the views of those in his cabinet. He cares too much about his relationship with Bush and Murdoch. This man is not fit to be our Prime Minister."

There is a slight flaw in Yorke's analysis, of course: Blair has specifically put Madge Beckett into the Foreign Office with the aim of stopping the department having views altogether.

its a nice sunny day. come on lets do it. you know it makes sense.

a vote of no confidence. or something. anything.

There's something pleasing about the idea that we should have a revolution because it's sunny. Almost as surprising as it is that Thom likes the sunshine - we'd have had him pegged as a autumnal man.
